Andrew Bynum still hasn’t been cleared for contact and therefore isn’t likely to be ready when the Cavaliers open training camp next week but that hasn’t soured coach Mike Brown’s opinion of him.
Brown still believes Bynum can be one of the best centers — ever.
“He could very easily be the best center in the game” Brown said. “Not only the game today but he’s skilled enough and has the rest of the tools to be one of the best ever.”
Bynum is now running on treadmills but has not resumed contact drills on the court Brown said Monday at the team’s charity golf outing at Firestone Country Club. There is still no timetable for Bynum’s return and no one in the organization is pressing him after his lengthy history of knee troubles.
“I’m not in any rush to get him back” Brown said. “Obviously it’d be great if he’s here for opening day and practicing. If he’s not I’m more than OK with it. We have a lot of guys capable of stepping up and playing or practicing until he is ready

Despite running on treadmills, Cleveland Cavaliers bat cave Andrew Bynum still hasn’t been cleared for contact or basketball activities. Cleveland signed the 25-year-old Bynum in July to a two-year contract that could be worth $24 million. Considering Bynum didn’t step onto the hardwood once last season as a Philadelphia 76er due to a potentially degenerative knee condition,...
Mike Brown is seen as a defensive guru in the NBA, but what can he do for a team’s offense?
In the 2008-09 season, Brown’s coaching helped the Cleveland Cavaliers to have a league best in opponents points per game, as well as a league leading 66-16 record. This is very different from what the Cavs have seen with Byron Scott at the reigns; a disorganized sight, to say the least...
It’s no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers have had an exciting offseason and created quite a buzz around the league going into the upcoming season. Reports from the Cavs golf outing on Monday at Akron’s Firestone Country Club have now reaffirmed fans of just how exciting this season could be.
According to Fox Sports Ohio’s Sam Amico, number one overall pick Anthony Bennett...
On September 18, it was announced that Andrew Bynum would probably miss the remainder of the season and is “nowhere ready” to playing basketball yet.
When the Cleveland cavaliers chose to sign the Sixers big man this offseason, they knew his recovery would be gradual (hence the incentive laden contract, though still costly, I realize). I believe they still have a good...
Three random guys got more than they bargained for when they challenged Cleveland Cavaliers forward Alonzo Gee and two of his friends to a pickup basketball game.
Gee’s crew fared better, as you might expect. While the game clearly was staged, the actual result probably would not have been all that different had they played for real.
Check it out in the video below.

It’s always great to see the other side of professional athletes that we don’t see everyday.
Cavaliers rising star Kyrie Irving spent time in South Africa this summer with UNICEF to shed light on the African children.
As you can see, Irving and the kids had a blast.
Cavaliers coach Mike Brown has taken to calling globe-trotting All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving "The Pied Piper'' of Cleveland basketball.
Which might mean more if Irving had any idea who The Pied Piper was.
"Can you guys tell me what that means?" Irving asked reporters at the 28th annual Cavaliers Youth Fund Golf Classic at Firestone Country Club. "...
Nerlens Noel does not want to be like Andrew Bynum, so when he starts talking about dates for his NBA debut, you can best believe he’s going to be close on the date it is.
According to Philly.com, Noel has been working diligently, and hopes to return by Christmas.
